63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Here it is. The first of our updated C-10 parts to come out of the project J.T. test truck. As we all know shocks are a key component for performance. But equally important is the location of the shocks. Remember, these were built as trucks, not performance drivers. So just as you update the motor and trans components it's important to upgrade suspension parts. Our new rear shock mounting system provides for the mounting of long stroke shocks. Even on lowered trucks, allowing the full travel of the rear suspension. Also we have recolated the shock position to mount them behind the axle, and outboard on the frame. This outboard mounting gives a wider stance for the shocks, making the truck more predictable and stable. As an added benefit there is now more room to run the exhaust over the rear axle. Installation is easy and only requires drilling four 3/8" holes. All of the mounts locate onto factory holes so no measuring is required. Start building true performance today. Parts are in stock and ready to ship. If you are adding shocks, we will need to know the drop of the rear spring.

(A) 0-4" Drop Spring
(B) 5-7" Drop Spring

Part # 3GC-RR-100
Complete Mounting System----------$149.00
(with out shocks)

Part # 3GC-RR-101 Specify A or B
So Cal Shocks-----------$73.00/pair
(soft and smooth)

Part # 3GC-RR-102 Specify A or B
Doetch Hydrolic-------------$119.00/pair
(mild/med, good with air bags)

Part # 3GC-RR-103 Specify A or B
Doetch Nitro--------$139.00/pair
(Med/Firm, canyon carver)

Part # 3GC-RR-104 Specify A or B
Bilstien Invertia Valve---------$258.00/Pair
Smooth, self adjusts to conditions)

Part # 3GC-RR-105 Specify A or B
Romic Billit with adjustable rebound-----$269.00/pair
Great for performance tunning

One more question. How far is the shock from the frame rail? If you were to use a KYB gas adjust would I have to cut the shocks upper protecting steel sheeve off? It might be tight, Do you have a vertical picture from the back view?

plenty of room, the inside edge of the shock eye is 1 1/4" from the frame rail. Or, the shock centerline is 1 15/16" from the rail. no need to trim anything.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Does the upper mount use existing frame holes or do you need to locate and drill new ones?

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Stealthy yes, the upper mount uses one existing hole per side (a large 5/8" hole) tp locate the mount, then you must drill two 3/8" holes per side.

68custom We have run these style mounts with coil-overs in the past, with great results. With the shock/spring located behind the axle, a soft spring is needed, around 200 lb/in. We have used a 5" stroke shock (17" open, 12" closed) with a 12" spring.

Panhard a question was asked about the compatability with stock, and other panhard rods. There is no clearance issues here, The upper mount in this system is a bit farther back on the rail (just behind the stock panhard mount) so there are no clearance problems with the stock panhard mount, or any aftermarket mounts.

Rob and Michelle thanks for sharing. This looks like a great addition to your product line that should be well received by the 63-72 GM truck crowd.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Rob, which shocks are you running on the back of JT? Do you plan on changing the shocks once it's on air?

Also, do you have any time frame of when the panhard bar and sway bar setups will be available?

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

The JT is running the #102 Doetsch hydrolic shocks. they are good but a little firm. Yes, we will keep these as our baseline shock with air. We just put a set of the #101 So Cal shocks on the back of Jakes 66 (a test truck for our rack kit) and it is on air, and he loves it now. The panhard kits are at powder coat, will be ready to ship sept 1, sway bars are in final testing, should be in production and ready to go oct 1.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Sounds good, do you have a price on the panhard bars yet and can we pre-order them? I'd like to get the panhard and shock setup ASAP, depending on if my truck account has enough for both right now. When the sway bars are ready I'll probably get one of those too.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

(B) 5-7" Drop Spring

I have a question about the above listed infomation. You have listed A or B based on drop spring size/drop. Would there be a difference if the spring was 4 inch with a 1 inch block? I am assuming that it doesn't matter how you achieve the amount,spring vs spring & block, it is just the amount of drop. I think I just confused myself...
I am currently running 5 inch springs, love the look but can't stand the harsh ride and am considering changing to a 3inch spring and 2 inch block. my shocks are Doetsch Tech P/N 4052G. or would I realize a decent(smooth) ride with just the addition of your shock kit or would you suggest changing it all? I do have a CPP relocation kit installed. Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Gregg,Actually the spring maters, and the block doesn't. The shock and spring both attatch to the trailing arm, so thats what matters. The block, if used, spaces the axle away from the trailing arm, but doesn't change the relationship of spring, arm, shock and frame. I would lean toward a 3" spring and a 2" block. As crazy as it sounds, the 'A' shoch measures 14" closed, and 23" open, thats nine inches of travel. The doetsch shock you have is 10" to 15.25", so 5 1/4" of travel. Also, the doetsch nitro is a firm/x-firm shock, but it needs to be due to the short travel avail. Hope all that helps.

I don't really want to sound impatient, but I need a panhard bar soon. If yours will be shipping next week, I'd like to get one of the first ones out the door. I'll probably be getting the shocks with the bar also.
